Markets In Rome

Rome’s markets are a food-lovers paradise!  Whether you’re on the hunt for the most

beautiful and round artichoke or some pecorino cheese straight from the sheep, in Rome you don’t

have to look far to find fresh products at the market.   For visitors to Rome, a trip to a local market

can be one of the best Roman experiences.    Here’s a list of our favorite markets:

 

Campo dei Fiori

Head to the market in Campo dei Fiori, held every morning but Sunday, for a slice of local

color.    Sure, it is the most tourist-visited market on this list, mostly because it’s located in

the Centro Storico, but plenty of locals shop here daily.   It’s also one of the oldest markets

in Rome, since 1869!

Testaccio Market

The market in Testaccio is another Roman standby.   You can find anything from artesan house

furnishings to a butcher slicing fresh meats.   Be sure to stop at the stand serving hot sandwiches

made with tripe, a district speciality!

Porta Portese Flea Market

Early every Sunday morning, the streets around Via Portuense in Trastevere fill shoppers

and sellers of every kind.  This market is Rome’s largest, and busiest, and most raucous flea

market.   There is lots of new stuff on sale but there is also a significant second-hand section

of the market.    Expect to do some searching as the market gets crowded, especially on a sunny

day.

Piazza Vittorio Market

One of the oldest markets in Rome, the Piazza Vittorio Market, or Esquilino Market, is full of

vendors from all over the world, not just Italians.    You’ll find hard-to-find vegetables  and

wonderfully smelling spices.   This market is more international so you never know what

you will find!   This market is open Monday to Saturday, 7am until 2pm
